Re: Covid-19 Question

Hey fellas.... lighten up. Do you think I live on a different planet and I'm oblivious to what the F is going on and affecting ALL of us, our families and loved ones? My intent of this post was to take our minds off of reality for a couple minutes to think about guitars..... guess I was wrong. "Real...

Covid-19 Question

Putting this out there for all of us...... what is the general thought about how the growing Covid-19 economic situation will affect buying/selling values of guitars?

Re: " 2020 TOKAI FORUM COOL GUITAR CONTEST! "

Honestly, I'd expected them to be all black too but it appears that I got an anomaly? From the years I've been looking for this Greco, they appear to be pretty rare. Here's the listing link of my purchase from Japan (I stole it at this price!). Scroll to the bottom for pics - thought there was one o...

Re: " 2020 TOKAI FORUM COOL GUITAR CONTEST! "

No, mine does..... a white inky stamp, 5 digits if I recall in the old vintage format - leading number is an 8 followed by a space and four additional numbers - kind of like the Mint Collection stamps. I'm actually out of town and don't have it in front of me.

Re: " 2020 TOKAI FORUM COOL GUITAR CONTEST! "

Still need to post pics but I got my hands on a Greco DE-70 double cut Danelectro 59 - the Jimmy Page model like this one: https://reverb.com/item/6309002-greco-de-70-1980-s-black Interestingly, the backside of the neck of mine is all black like the body. Arrived in great shape with the original bur...

Re: Please help me !

Not to digress but I had a couple of the Mike's Music guitars..... do you guys remember that he came out with a Limited Edition series of three guitars (Goldtop, Cherry Burst and Violin Burst) back in 2001? Truss rod cover said MM2001 on it. I had the goldtop and violin burst and I have to say, they...

Re: Shiiping guitar from Australia to USA

I'd always heard that size was an issue .... that necks needed to be removed. Obviously not an option with set necks.

Re: Tokai TGC identification

TGC probably means Tokai Gakki Co., Ltd., often referred as Tokai Guitars Company Ltd.,
